The soundtrack themes from the film “Coral Sea Dreaming Awaken” will be familiar to any fan of the original award-winning documentary film of 20 years ago (Coral Sea Dreaming). Reconstructed and re-recorded for David Hannan’s 2013 Hi-Def film of the same name, this collection of instrumental works shares the beautiful and peaceful musical themes which were inspired by the enchanting and mystical underwater landscape of the Coral Sea… serene, breathtaking, and magnificent…and devastatingly dying.
Tania Rose created music which ebbs and flows, cascades and envelopes, in gentle washes of graceful melodies and timeless musical soundscapes. The themes speak of calmness and tranquillity, and very occasionally express an undercurrent of something unseen and moody. It’d difficult to describe these works without the use of watery metaphors, such is their reflection of the watery world from which they were created.
If there was one track alone to listen to, it would be the final theme, “Angels of the Sea”. Tania Rose's layered voice on this reworked theme for the new film, brings the music in line with the emotional outpouring she experience whilst writing the end of the original soundtrack…an awe-inspired love and yearning, giving way to the pain of losing this extraordinary natural wonder. Often referred as the “manta ray music”, this theme does indeed share the beauty of these magnificent angels of the deeps, their majesty, and their strength, with a mournful repose.
